A SimilarWeb profile seems harder to get than an Alexa profile?  

Some of the sites I wanted to see in this engine were not available?

This is what my +Neil Ferree  seo profile looks like in the SimilarWeb  engine. +SimilarWeb is a nice tool to test and see your metrics.

How many G+ Posts are Indexed?

Drop in your site:google+ digits into the G search bar to see how many posts G has indexed and then do the same for your top 5 competitors and make note of which posts resonate with you?
 
Indexed Posts and Images on Google Plus

Enter a simple ASO (advanced search operator) into the G search bar to get a current count of how many G+ Posts Google has crawled and indexed with your Authorship connected.

I have no idea how the Google algo determines which of these 9,890 indexed posts get rendered nor why a post I did back in 2012 would find its way to the top vs. a more recent or socially engaged post with a lot more +1's and comments and social shares wouldn't get top billing?

Click the Image option to see what images G has in your bucket?

WHO knows how or why these images show up., although I'm not complaining. I like it that my daughter's Maui SkyDive adventure got top billing.

ASO for Neil Ferree

Just replace my name with yours and see what happens?

Understanding the Contextual Meaning Behind a Query
Brian posted this earlier today which I found interesting

Q:: When will mobile overtake desktop?
A :: July 2014 (according to Google)

So I asked Google
What is the Best Content Marketing System?

https://www.google.com/#newwindow=1&q=what+is+the+best+content+marketing+system%3F

I didn't get an answer box like Brian did. Discovering more of these answer box SERPs is on my radar now so I can find the semantic search queries and longtails and see to it that me and my clients prepare, package and promote the best (right) semantic content.

What are the Best Practices in a Content Marketing System?
http://bit.ly/1iOJAn5

Depending on how you look at it, the conversational search (ask Siri) or Talk to your Galaxy S4 is going to replace the old style conventional SEO KW+Geo+Modifier formula for find the right (best) web pages to get the answer to your question

Earlier today I was researching the health benefits of #CBD  I came across a post by the social savvy +Logan Lynn Roberts and noticed how she was using LMGTFY widget and it struck me that this routine could be an effective technique for populating a List.ly list with an assortment of semantic rich questions on content I've syndicated to various social channels in my social link wheel all over the Net.

This best practices CMS question is an early test case on the routine. I would image there are dozens of professions where a set of semantic questions and answers would be most applicable?

A Complete Guide to the NOD3x Dashboard

This is the first in a series of articles detailing exactly what NOD3x can tell you. 

This article reviews the nine modules that you see within the real-time infographic dashboard that provides the answers to the 5W's:

 - Who = who's taking about this topic?
 - What = what are they specifically saying?
 - Why = why are they talking about it?
 - Where = where are they talking about it?
 - When = when are they most likely to talk about it?

Armed with this information alone you'll be well on your way to answering those questions that would normally take many hours to do manually.

The Mindmeister MindMap engine let's you visualize a process such the the user can see what the end game should look like ahead of time.

You can expand sections, click thru to the social profile and compare this version against what your social link wheel looks like?

What's not so obvious is the cumulative effect this model has when it comes to establishing social authority by way of Google Authorship and the content that gets associated to your body of work.
